MoneyTap is one of the main platforms in Japan that help in money transfer. The platform connects 60 banks in the country using Ripple’s technology. As one can expect, the transaction settler aims to connect more banks around the world, and by doing this, it has decided to launch its official website moneytap.jp.

Although there hasn’t been lots of information on this, the point is that this development is good news for Ripple and its community – a giant step forward.

As stated earlier, MoneyTap comprises 60 banks in Japan, consisting of 80% of banks in Japan. The platform has indicated that it will feature its application on iOS and Android devices too, before the end of this year.

MoneyTap has solely been using Ripple solution for quite some time now, and this is due to the fact that Ripple offers a faster and cheaper means to transfer payments in the world. Today, Ripple is seen as a big competitor to SWIFT. Founded back in 1973, SWIFT is the old player and has more than 200+ countries registered on its network, but Ripple on its part offers a better solution.

Now with the help of Ripple solutions, Money Tap is devoted to change the way remittance payments get done in Japan having succeeded in getting more than sixty banks on board to join its payment platform, which would be mentioned by Ripple’s Director of Joint Venture Partnerships, Emi Yoshikawa.

It is worth recalling that the SBI CEO stated earlier at the time when MoneyTap was to be announced that:

loading...

We are also considering using XRP for bridge currency in Money Tap.”

Moreover, Ripple’s solutions have been adopted by different FinTech companies around the world today. In fact, the blockchain firm is leading when it comes to mass adoption.

But its community is worried of the aspect that XRP hasn’t actualized its utility throughout the world’s Financial Sector. Given this, MoneyTap will be the very first mobile application of such genre to be utilized by different Financial Institution in the world.

It’s seen that despite SBI having launched its own crypto exchange, called VCTRADE and exploring other digital assets in the market today, it still supports Ripple and its products.

Meanwhile, Ripple has also commented on the issues that Japan’s Financial Sector faces. The company believes,

Flexibility with domestic payments is limited in Japan: transactions must occur on weekdays and between 8:30 am and 3:30 pm or risk delays. While there are discussions to change the window on the current banking rail system to make it accessible 24 hours a day and seven days a week, the cost of implementing it would be high. Blockchain powered domestic payments will speed transactions and lower costs.”

Also, Yoshikawa (Joint Venture Partnerships Director of Ripple) has stated that,

“the release of the MoneyTap mobile app shows Ripple’s continued commitment to providing its partners across Asia and the world with blockchain-powered solutions that dramatically improve the customer payments journey.”

Ripple mass adoption has increased, and without a doubt, its recent feat with MoneyTap came at the right time when Ripple and R3 consortium settled the dispute between them.

As things stand, Ripple is committed to making global remittance payment very efficient, and soon it might become the primary technology for cross-border payments.

Ripple XRP Mega Breakout: What’s Next?

Ripple XRP mega breakout

The Ripple XRP mega breakout that we were calling for happened and happened much quicker than anyone expected. As we said yesterday:

Nonetheless, IF, Ripple is capable of going ‘topside’ of the .38 figure at any point in the days/weeks ahead, such development, should it occur, would likely trigger its next advance into the .42 – .47 zone, representing a 30-40% move from present levels. On the flip-side, the .25 – .26 area should offer short-term potential support.

XRP is now sitting at .51704  as we write this article this morning, representing gains of 61% since we alerted our readers and our Global Elite email newsletter members.

Ripple XRP Mega Breakout

The Ripple XRP mega breakout is significant because it’s the first time XRP has been above its 50-day moving average since May. Right now, the RSI is approaching 80, so we are in overbought territory and we expect the price to consolidate around the .42 to .47 level before resuming its uptrend.

While some are looking at this as an opportunity to short XRP, we are not of that camp. While some can book some profits and use a trailing stop, any integration of XRP with xRapid has the ability to create a tremendous move in XRP. As Travis Kling said this week on the Off the Chain podcast with Anthony Pompliano, XRP could be the quickest five-bagger investors…

The volatility of the crypto market has made it quite difficult to predict the outcome of what prices will become. To predict the prices of cryptocurrencies, various factors and characteristics are used to forecast whether a cryptocurrency will come up with a bull run.

The price of altcoins is significantly affected by the rise and fall in the Bitcoin price. In other words, if there is an increase in the price of BTC on a given day, there will be a high tendency for other altcoins to follow the same trend.

Concerning Tron, the market activity of Bitcoin has also affected the price of TRX lately. If that is the case, what will be the price of TRX before the year runs out and even next year? Well, we will be using various factors to predict the price of TRX in a year time or so (after seeing the recent market pickup).

The expected value of Tron TRX in a year or so now?

On a positive note, Tron has released lots of projects to aid and benefit its users worldwide, ever since the launch of its MainNet. Even recently, the blockchain announced another mega project known as Project Atlas. Despite the start of these projects, there hasn’t been a significant change in its price until recently. It is essential to know that even when these projects were getting launched, its price kept depreciating.

There aren’t any upcoming projects on…

Litecoin Cash

Litecoin underwent a hard fork in the past, and that is what led to the creation of Litecoin Cash. Bitcoin has also experienced a hard fork, which has led to the creation of Bitcoin Cash, so this trend is not necessarily brand new.

Forks have occurred pretty often now in the cryptocurrency community, and the perception is that it probably will continue to, as long as the need (forks are often created to overcome issues faced by the originals) remains there.

While the market has been bearish for most of the year, it has been showing some definite signs of life, especially when we look at the kind of price action that has been happening with Ripple recently. Litecoin is also rising in anticipating of its hard fork, which is to be expected.

For those who are unaware, Litecoin Cash was created earlier this year. 10 Litecoin Cash was given to every investor who had 1 Litecoin – and that one move, it’s easy to see, was very massive concerning value.

Charlie Lee, the founder of Litecoin, has come out against LiteCoin Cash, calling it a scam. Many cryptocurrency influencers have come out against Litecoin cash, although there are still others that believe that this is only because the project threatens them.
